    Stefano Jewellery is an online jewellery store founded by Lane Cove local Stefano.  Their concept is quality designed products, beautifully made and sold at the very best price.

When he wanted the most beautifully made chains for example, he looked no further than Italy. Every item of jewellery is made of sterling silver (92.5% by weight), hallmarked and most importantly, made by true craftsmen.

    F45 Training Artarmon

    F45 is a unique style of training, combining elements of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Circuit Training and Functional Training (hence the “F” in F45). F45 Artarmon currently has 27 different workouts, some of which are cardio, some resistance, some a mix of both, but all super addictive! Workouts run for 45 minutes (except for Hollywood on Saturday’s, which is 60 minutes), which means that even the most time-poor people can squeeze in a session each day! F45 have over 3,000 individual exercises in our system and you will never do the same workout twice. One of the top reasons people give up on exercise is due to boredom, whereas at F45 you will constantly be challenged, which means continuous improvement. F45 is the pinnacle of group fitness, and is the fastest growing fitness franchise in the world, with 1000+ studios now functioning in 36 countries – including of course F45 Artarmon (which is located in the Lane Cove Council Area).  You can read more about F45 Artarmon here (and they have already received some great reviews on our website.)
